We will spend this Christmas season meditating on the most basic, yet most profound, truth of Jesus’ Birthday:
Jesus Was Born
It is a truth we as Christians gloss over without a second thought, yet in this three-word statement is contained a paradox: God became Man! How can there be a God-Man? These four Sundays of December, we will investigate the whole breadth of Scripture, and we will see that at the center of the Bible lies this Christ Jesus, the one born on Christmas.
Each sermon will center on the life of Jesus as narrated in the Gospel accounts, with one Old Testament and one New Testament passage acting as “arrows” pointing to Christ the Center.
We look forward to seeing you, and have a Merry Christmas!
